US Election News: David Cameron Not Backing Down On Donald Trump Comments, Trump Challenges Sadiq Khan To IQ Test, & More
David Cameron refuses to back down on his comments on Donald Trump. There is no way the British Prime Minister is taking back his words, not even if Trump warns that he thinks he won’t have “a very good relationship” with Downing Street if he became president.
According to a report from the BBC, Cameron remains clear about his views: that Trump’s views on a Muslim ban is “stupid, divisive and wrong.” Furthermore, Cameron said, “I think if he came to visit our country I think it’d unite us all against him.”
Trump challenges Sadiq Kahn to an IQ test. After the newly elected London mayor said he doesn’t want to become an “exception” to Trump’s ban on Muslims entering the U.S., Trump decided to challenge Kahn to an IQ test, since the London mayor called his Muslim ban ignorant.
In response, Hillary Clinton’s team recorded that Trump said, “Let’s take an I.Q. test…. I don’t care about him… I think they’re very rude statements, and frankly, tell him, I will remember those statements.” Khan’s team is simply laughing the matter off.
Hillary Clinton talks about husband’s role if she wins president. According to a report from The Telegraph, the former first lady said that former president Bill Clinton will put in charge of “revitalizing the economy.”
The Democratic presidential nominee believes her husband “knows how to do it.” Moreover, she said that this is especially true “in places like coal country and inner cities and other parts of our country that have been really left out.”
Bernie Sanders says Clinton is lying when it comes to his stand on auto bailout. According to the Vermont senator, Clinton’s camp repeated their false claim about Sanders not voting to fund the auto industry aid package back in 2008.
According to Sanders, he had, in fact, voted in favor of the $14 billion package passed in the House of Representatives on December 10, 2008. Meanwhile, Sanders’ camp also pointed out that between the two Democratic presidential candidate, only Sanders voted against bailing out big banks during the 2008 economic crisis.
Sanders demands for a terrorist to be released from prison. According to a report from the New York Post, the Vermont Senator has demanded for the release of convicted Puerto Rican terrorist Oscar López Rivera from prison.
“We are talking about a Vietnam War veteran who was awarded a Bronze Star. I say to President Obama — let him out,” Sanders explained.
López Rivera was arrested back on May 1981 in Chicago and was charged with trying overthrow the U.S. along with armed robbery, weapons violations, interstate transportation of stolen property and conspiracy to destroy federal property.
Moreover, the organization he founded, Fuerza Armadas de Liberacion Nacional, is also believed to be responsible for as much as 114 bombings that killed six people and injured 130 more.
